A Transformational Experience 

Over 12 months, students participate in coursework with Georgetown's top faculty, experiential learning residencies -- one of which is conducted abroad, and one-on-one leadership coaching. Combined with access to some of the world’s most respected leaders for a lifetime, the EML is an unforgettable educational experience.

"I've always thought of myself as being a leader, even as a little kid.  I knew that leadership is a lifelong journey and I knew that I would need to continue to bolster my skillset to be at the top.”

Why did you pursue an Executive Master's in Leadership degree at Georgetown?

Most traditional business programs took me out of my networks in Washington, D.C., or were focused on areas of study that only mildly intrigued me, but the Executive Master’s in Leadership (EML) program seemed the perfect fit of personal leadership development, business strategy, experiences, and conversations that could help hone my strengths as a leader and open my thinking to new concepts for the work I do to empower women to lead in politics.

Lifelong Learning Program (LLP)

At Georgetown's McDonough School of Business, leaders never graduate. When Executive Education alumni graduate, they leave with an open invitation to return to the classroom to refresh their knowledge and reconnect with classmates and faculty.

How it works

In the fall and spring of each academic year, we offer our alumni the opportunity to audit EMBA elective courses on a space-available basis. Once enrolled, there is a $100 participation fee to secure a seat in the classroom and course materials. At the end of the course, alumni receive certificates of course completion. Examples of courses offered in the past include:

Adaptive Leadership

Big Data

Cost and Profit

Entrepreneurial Finance and Venture Capital 


Mergers and Acquisitions

Power and Influence

Real Options

Management Communications
